Once political partners and close friends, Amar Singh, Amitabh Bachchan, and Jaya Bachchan’s relationship turned sour, leading to a shocking distance. Greed, ambition, and betrayal ruined what had been a strong bond between them.
Amar Singh was a big reason why Amitabh Bachchan’s career came back to life and why Jaya Bachchan went into politics. But as we got closer to the 2010s, cracks began to show. Reports that Singh was trying to get money and use politics for his own gain made things worse.
In 2017, Singh made shocking claims that Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan had been living seperately before he came into their lives. This news broke the carefully kept image of the perfect Bachchan family and led to rumours of tense relationships, even between Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her family.
The fight got worse when Singh called Amitabh Bachchan out in public, saying that he was like a gardener on screen but an emotional uprooter off screen. The anger got worse and worse.
When Amar Singh died in 2020, the public fight came to a stop. His death was a reminder that ambition and jealousy can break up even the closest friendships.
Some people’s reputations were ruined, government careers came to an end, and Amitabh Bachchan had to step out of the spotlight because of what happened. It shows that even the strongest partnerships can fall apart when people have their own goals in mind.
